Drawing air into syringe when giving intramuscular shot.

Posted by stormshadowixi @stormshadowixi, May 2, 2023

Should I be able to get literal air bubbles when I am giving myself a testosterone shot, and draw back to make sure that I am not in a blood vessel? I can see air drops go into the syringe and through the testosterone oil and fill up where the plunger was moved to.

I am not sure where to post this, so sorry if this is the wrong place.

When the dose is drawn into the syringe, hold the syringe pointing straight up in the air, give syringe flick with your finger, air bubbles will go to top. Then push them. Might loose a small drop of medicine, but that is normal.
Yes, when you give the shot, pull back syringe a VERY little bit. If you see blood, don’t inject it,you are in a blood vessel.
